Abstract

As counselors, it is important for us to understand specific modes of communication with our clients. If a counselor were to work with the DeafBlind community they would recognize that there are two different modes of communication, Pro-Tactile and Haptics. Haptics was developed and designed by a group of DeafBlind individuals in Denmark; adopted and used by the Helen Keller National Center to train new DeafBlind students. Pro-Tactile is a new approach in communication, researched and designed by the DeafBlind community in Seattle, WA. Jelica Nuccio and aj Grande, founders of Tactile Communication, LLC, believe that the DeafBlind community has been told “hold, we’ll tell you later” for far too long by the Deaf Community and are now saying no more waiting, tell us now through Pro-Tactile. During the presentation, the audience will see a demonstration of both Pro-Tactile and Haptics. The presenter will explain why most DeafBlind individuals living in the United States prefer Pro-Tactile.
